WOYWW #224....10 days to go

Until I am 40 - wowzers! Don't forget to check out my 40 for 40 offer :) - link to the right.

 It's that time again and that can only mean one thing....WOYWW...come and join Julia and the gang for the weekly global desk nose..check out Julia's blog Stamping Ground for more info.

Today I am showing you LOTS!! Ha ha sorry Julia :)

Let's start with my desk..taken on Tuesday night about 10.45pm NYC time...I am in the midst of making party bags for my party, the beautiful Venetian Summer stamp (that I have wanted for ages) card is going in each of the 24 bags, the little stack of canvas at the top right of my mat is a gift I need to get finishing for a friends birthday, there are papers kicking around for my Goddaughter's birthday stuff, Promarker colour chart and Promarkers everywhere! Messy!

Here is a close-up of the card.

Venetian Summer Card
Love it, such fun to work with.

I spent last week and Saturday organising... A4 papers and smaller scraps are now colour coded and live here...
All the drawers hold different colours and there is one drawer for printed images. BLISS! The ones to the left hold punches.

Stamps live in these gorgeous folders...
Folders on their shelf
By Martha Stewart and Avery for Staples...on sale for 50 cents each - YAY!! Each folder is beautifully labelled using a Martha Stewart Avery printable kraft label and each folder has different groups of stamps (birthdays, weddings, etc)

  7. I love to organize too. Don't tell anyone but sometimes I think it is more fun than crafting itself. I love the multicolored drawered bins you have. I wanted some of those for Christmas one year and hubby found a similar one that the drawers were all black. Since I'm in the living room it is probably better to have them all match but looking at yours I just realized that with different colored drawers you could organized by color in them!!! And now I'm jealous. I love your pretty little binders as well. I haven't gotten that far in organizing to make my binders pretty and matching but I did put black duct tape over the front of my ugly cardboard magazine holders! Yeah, not quite as fancy. Love your card, so pretty and elegant. I can see why you lusted after that stamp for ages. It is a must have!

  8. great card sounds like it's going to be a fabulous celebration. Have fun. Anne x #112

  9. Love the organization! We're the binders 50 cents? Or the labels? Fab card too! I would love to be organized..just don't like the doing part. :) Care to take a field trip after the Big part-ee

  10. Aaarrggghh blogger cut off the last part of my comment......A field trip down to FL to help me organize. wink wink :)

  11. Loving the organisation there - I can get a bit OCD sometimes. Have a great birthday. I'm 40 in a few months so not far behind you!

  17. Hi Claire, thanks for your comment on my WOYWW post this week and directing me to your post about stamp you are organised! I love your coloured coded drawers for papers...I may be following you with this!
